Chicken something

what is this called i watched it in a braising vid in class today

some chicken
chopped onions
garlic lots of it - chopped finely
parsley - chopped finely
mushrooms - sliced
white wine
fish broth or any light stock/broth
tomatoes - peeled seeds removed and diced
gingersnap - ground finely by processor

first lightly coat chicken in flour

chicken seared in olive oil taken out then onion and mushrooms caramalized

add chicken back in and add stock/broth and white wine in the pot until its up to braising level instead of stewing lvl add tomatoes and garlic and parsley. cover and let it sit for like 45 minutes.

after its cooked take out chicken and plate. filter out the stuff for sauce using a china cap. for the sauce add in gingersnap "for a spicy like flavor"

Sounds similar to Coq A Vin to me, but with the addition of the ginger snaps to thicken, sweeten, and add a bit of ginger flavor.

Well, Coq au Vin uses red wine not white, and certainly not "ginger snaps"... if I remembered correctly ginger snaps are the little biscuits aren't they? Very unique idea... I can't honestly imagine the effect it would cast on a chicken!! Can I taste it when you make it next time?? Sounds like a bold new invention so I would say you can name it as you prefer...
